7 DIY Tiki Torches To Wow Your Party Guests

Step into your local hardware store and you’re bound to stumble into any number of Tiki torches, ranging from the cheap LED polycarbonate constructed ones to the more expensive handmade versions that come with lifetime fiberglass wicks and steel holders.

Sure, you could purchase a handful of those Tiki torches to spruce up your backyard, but why spend THAT much money when you can create your own unique Tiki torches back at home? Don’t be like everyone else. Build yourself a Tiki torch that will make your friends and family say, “WOW”.
